The Duck Mountain Super League, featuring men’s curling teams from Canora, Benito, Norquay
Madge Lake and Kamsack, is back for another season.
Play for all eight teams got underway at the Broda Sportsplex in Kamsack on November 12. Two
more draws were completed in Kamsack November 19 and November 26. Action then shifted to
Norquay December 3.
League leaders, both with three wins, are the Ken Newell team of Norquay, sponsored by Challoner
Farm, and Fred Perepiolkin’s crew of Kamsack, sponsored by Nykolaishen Farms.
Tied for second place with two wins each are Rick Kinaschuk of Benito, sponsored by W.F.
Schneider and Son, Richard Jordens of Madge Lake, sponsored by Ritchie Industries, and Tyson
Leis of Kamsack, still looking for a $300 backer.
Duck Mountain Super League curling action was to resume in Canora on December 10. The good people of Benito, Manitoba will host Draw Six on December 17, and regular season
action concludes in Norquay on December 19.
It should be noted that Ken Newell and Brad Knutson, both of Norquay, who were unable to
compete in Kamsack November 19, have scheduled a make-up game for December 20. The
outcome of this game will determine final league standings.
Duck Mountain Super League teams are awarded $50 per win in regular season play. The top four teams advance to A side playoffs set for January 3 in Kamsack where they will compete for $830 in prize money. The B side playoff will also take place.
The public is welcome to attend these curling events. Admission is free.
